A flashy New York City bishop who was robbed at gunpoint during a worship service says pastors should be allowed to arm themselves.

Bishop Lamor Whitehead and his wife were robbed of $400K in jewels while delivering a sermon at his church in Brooklyn, NY on Sunday.

Police said three armed men burst into the church around 11:15 a.m., and "displayed firearms and demanded property" from the 44-year-old bishop and his wife, 38.

"When I see them come into the sanctuary with their guns, I told everybody to get out, everybody just get out," Whitehead recalled in an Instagram video posted after the robbery. "I didn't know if they wanted to shoot the church up or if they were just coming for a robbery."

Video of the assault went viral on social media and aired on local news outlets. In the video, Whitehead can be heard saying, "all right, all right," before putting his hands up and dropping to the floor.

The gunmen fled in a Mercedes Benz, police say. They are still at large.

Guns are banned in NY, but that doesn't stop criminals from getting their hands on one.

Whitehead is known for his flashy persona, custom jewelry and loud tailored suits.

In May, Whitehead negotiated the surrender of a murder suspect, then drove the suspect to a police precinct in his tricked out Rolls-Royce.

Andrew Abdullah, 25, was wanted in the fatal shooting of Goldman Sachs employee Daniel Enriquez on a Manhattan-bound Q train.

House Democrats and Republicans voted 234-193 on Friday to approve a sweeping gun reform bill, sending it to the President's desk to be signed into law. The new bill will take guns out of the hands of criminals.

The Senate voted 65 to 33 late Thursday to approve the bipartisan gun control bill. The bill won the support of all 50 Democrats and 15 Republicans.

Lawmakers are calling the bill the most significant gun reform legislation in nearly 30 years.

The new bill was approved weeks after a plethora of mass shootings shook America to its core.

19 children and 2 teachers were killed during a mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. And 10 people were shot and killed at a grocery store in Buffalo, NY.

Both mass shootings were carried out by troubled teenagers who obtained their assault rifles legally.

Gun control legislation that millions have prayed for will soon become reality in America.

In a surprise move over the weekend, 10 Republicans in the Senate reached a compromise with Democrats on a sweeping gun control legislation proposal.

The news sparked outrage among gun lovers, and comes a week after House Democrats passed the most restrictive gun reform package in history.

The House approved a gun reform bill last week, but political analysts yawned, because they knew gun legislation would never make it past the Senate.

That is, until this weekend, when ten Republican senators agreed not to filibuster the package, which would have doomed the gun reform bill.

Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut, one of the lead negotiators, released a summary of the new agreement reached by Senate GOP members and Senate Democrats.

The bill will allow states to implement so-called "red flag" laws, increase spending for mental health services and school-safety measures, and close the "boyfriend loophole," that previously blocked domestic abusers from buying guns.

The new legislation will also place restrictions on licensed gun dealers, and strengthen the existing background-check system for gun buyers under 21, to include a review of juvenile and mental health records, and stronger penalties for firearm straw purchases (to keep guns out of the hands of convicted felons and gang members).

The new gun reform proposal quickly received the President's backing on Sunday night. Joe Biden has said he will sign the new bill immediately.

Question: Are you surprised that both chambers of Congress agreed to Gun Control so quickly in your lifetime?

Outraged gun lovers reacted swiftly to the news on Twitter.

FYI: "RINO" means Republicans In Name Only.

Vice President Kamala Harris called for a ban on assault rifles at the funeral of Ruth Whitfield, the oldest victim of the shooting at the Tops Friendly supermarket in Buffalo, NY on May 14.

Whitfield, 86, was the last of the 10 victims to be buried on Saturday.

VP Harris was not scheduled to speak at Whitfield's funeral on Saturday. She was invited to deliver remarks by the Rev. Al Sharpton.

Harris said assault rifles and similar long guns have no place in a civil society.

"Let's have an assault weapons ban. An assault weapon is a weapon of war with no place, no place in civil society," she said.

"This is a moment that requires all good people, all God-loving people to stand up and say we will not stand for this," she added.

"Enough is enough. We will come together based on what we all know we have in common, and we will not let those people who are motivated by hate separate us or make us feel fear."

After the funeral, VP Harris and her husband Doug Emhoff placed flowers at a memorial at the site of the shooting.

Later Harris told reporters that the Biden administration is not "sitting around waiting to figure out what the solution looks like" to the nation's gun violence problem.

"Background checks: Why should anyone be able to buy a weapon that can kill other human beings without at least knowing: Hey, that person committed a violent crime before, are they a threat against themselves or others?"

Harris' remarks were well-received on Twitter. Many voters said, if Harris can convince lawmakers to ban assault weapons, she should be the first woman president of the US.

The Buffalo massacre and last week's mass shooting at a Texas elementary school that claimed 21 lives were committed by troubled teenagers who legally purchased their weapons.

The Buffalo supermarket killer is charged with first-degree murder and is being held without bail.

The Uvalde, Texas shooter was finally gunned down an hour after he shot 32 people in two classrooms at Robb Elementary.

Texas Rep. Ronny Jackson (right) said rap music, video games and social media are to blame for school shootings.

Jackson called for compromise between the two political parties in Congress in the aftermath of the deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

"We need God, family and community back in our lives," Jackson said on "Fox & Friends" Wednesday.

Jackson blamed rap music and pop culture for the breakdown in family values that leads to mental health disorders and gun violence.

"We have to embrace the moral decline in this country... Our kids are exposed to a lot of stuff that's harmful to them with video games, these violent video games... Some of the rap music they listen to is not healthy. We need to address this kind of stuff."

Jackson urged lawmakers to focus on gun safety and to put God back in the classroom.

"We have shootings all the time and they're all unfortunate," he said. "I wish none of them happened. But when you see something like this, it's extra horrific. And I think that this will allow me to talk to my colleagues on the other side of the aisle and say, look, you know, I'm a staunch defender of the Second Amendment and I'm going to remain that way."

21 lives were lost when a crazed gunman barged into an elementary school armed with an assault rifle that he legally purchased on his 18th birthday.

Still, Rep. Jackson said he will not back down on the Second Amendment and the rights to own and bear arms.

"Taking firearms away from law-abiding citizens is not the answer," he said. "That just leaves all the criminals with the weapons, and the law-abiding citizens with nothing to defend themselves with."

A viral video shows Biden getting into a heated confrontation with an auto worker while touring the Fiat Chrysler plant in Detroit, Michigan on Tuesday, March 10.

When the worker asked Biden to clarify whether he would take away union worker's guns, Biden told the man, "You're full of sh*t!"

Seeing that the confrontation would not end well for Biden, a female campaign aide tried to move him along. But Biden put his hand in her face and told the woman of color, "SHUSH! shush!"

Clearly his aide is used to being shushed and put in her place by her boss, who is showing signs of dementia.

One can only imagine the indignation and outrage coming from the left if President Trump told a woman to shush. Some in the mainstream media even suggested Biden, 77, was correct to silence his subordinate while he's talking.

The incident occurred hours before Biden pulled off major primary wins over Bernie Sanders in Missouri, Michigan and Mississippi on Tuesday night.

Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms again endorsed Biden, during a speech at a church in DeKalb County, Georgia on Sunday night.
